Framework for the Preservation of Museum Collections

The "Framework for Preservation of Museum Collections" is an online version of the popular wall chart available from the Canadian Conservation Instittyue (CCI) that outlines various methods used to avoid or control potential deterioration to museum objects. The grid list nine agents of deterioration that affect museum objects, and include the type of damage that each can cause. The first five agents (direct physical forces; thieves, vandals, and displacers; fire; water; and pests) are widespread throughout the world. The last four agents (contaminants; radiation; incorrect temperature; and incorrect relative humidity) are of particular concern to museums. The columns represent three different levels at which the agents of deterioration can be controlled. (extracted from website)
